After another amazing trip to Cuba, Master of Preservation Studies students and faculty leaders are readjusting and remembering the sites, discoveries, and conversations of last week. Below is a brief synopsis and photos of their extraordinary trip. 

"The Tulane Master of Preservation Studies course in International Practice visited Cienfuegos, Trinidad and Havana in late March 2017 to learn about the operation of Cuba's UNESCO World Heritage Cities. Led in partnership with Tulane's Cuban Studies department and members of ICOMOS Cuba, the 9-day study trip entailed site visits, lectures, interviews and field research. Topics addressed aspects of architectural heritage conservation including tourism management, infrastructure needs, site interpretation and community involvement.  Two round tables with our hosts allowed a sharing of ideas and suggestions that could be applied in both Cuba and the United States."
